Adventice — Issue 01

<p> ADVENTICE PROJECT</p> <p>  </p> <p> ➔ Adventice is a publication of observations, analysis and visual essays.</p> <p> It is independently published and distributed twice a year.</p> <p>  </p> <p> ➔ Adventice concentrates on the <strong>confrontation</strong> of different topics,</p> <p> highlighting the <strong>tension between conflicting subjects</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> ➔ Despite it being an<strong> art publication</strong>, it strives to create a dialogue between</p> <p> various fields. Authors such as writers, photographers, designers, biologists</p> <p> and illustrators explore the specificities of the given theme. The diverse</p> <p> approaches concentrate on the <strong>ungrateful</strong> and usually left aside aspects</p> <p> of the question.</p> <p>  </p> <p> ➔ Each issue focuses on the encounter of specific and precise disciplines,</p> <p> presenting several personal interpretations. Every edition contains an insert</p> <p> which introduces an academical or scientific research. However our aim is</p> <p> not to give thorough knowledge, rather it is a specialized cultural publication.</p> <p> The project aspires to push the limits and even take on insignificant matters.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Manifesto.Adventice" height="655" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><a href=""></a></strong></p> <p> <strong><strong>➔ <a href="">Adventice </a></strong><a href="">facebook</a></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> —</p> <p>  </p> <p> ISSUE 01</p> <p>  </p> <p> 128 pages, 230 x 310 mm, soft cover.</p> <p>  </p> <p> CONTENT</p> <p> Another Jungle by Jérôme Foubert</p> <p> Before I Hatched by Laurent Maestracci</p> <p> Behind The Scene by Équipe Adventice</p> <p> Blue Dark Garden by Diane du Chaxel,</p> <p> Alaric Garnier and Pablo Réol</p> <p> Utopia by Matthieu Lavanchy</p> <p> and Jonas Marguet</p> <p> English Roses by Team Adventice</p> <p> Fabulous Friends by Simon Ladoux,</p> <p> Marie-Luce Schaller and Sebastian Stadler</p> <p> Gotham City by Team Adventice</p> <p> Invasive Species by Hugo Devèze</p> <p> Magic Beast by Team Adventice</p> <p> Reaching Mountains by Ugo Bienvenu,</p> <p> Guilia Rossini and Rafael Kouto Reaching</p> <p> Hybrid by Jacques Duboux</p> <p> The Clan Cacophony by Fabrice Mabime</p> <p> The Reader Explorer by Cassandre Poirier-Simon</p> <p> Walk The Line by Jennifer McGlinchey</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="" height="650" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="" height="325" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="" height="655" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="" height="325" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="" height="325" src="" width="500"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> ABOUT</p> <p>  </p> <p> We met two years ago at the beginning of our Master program at the Ecal,</p> <p> university of Art, Lausanne. It was an evidence for us to work together, as we</p> <p> share similar interests and aesthetics. Our collaboration has grown stronger</p> <p> over the months of collaborative work. Indeed we have combined our</p> <p> respective skills of graphic design and photography.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Adventice issue number one will be our first published project. For the past </p> <p> two years we have been working on this project with great dedication.</p> <p> We have created a solid network of contributors and friends from various</p> <p> backgrounds who have supported and made possible the realization</p> <p> of Adventice. It has been a great adventure, and a rich human experience!</p> <p> We are really happy to have reached the production stage, and need</p> <p> your help to finalize it.</p> <p>  </p> <p> For further information, please visit our website:</p> <p> <strong><a href=""></a></strong></p> <p> <strong><strong><strong>➔ <a href="">Adventice </a></strong><a href="">facebook</a></strong></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a>Co-founders and editors:</a></p> <p> <a>Florine Bonaventure</a></p> <p> <a>Jennifer Niederhauser Schlup</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> Consulting:</p> <p> Krzysztof Lukasik</p> <p> Simon Ladoux</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>

Allocation of funds

<p>  </p> <p> From the beginning, Adventice has not been conceived as a usual magazine,</p> <p> rather it is specialized publication dealing with cultural and artistic themes.</p> <p> It will therefore be distributed in a few selective librairies in Europe</p> <p> and online.</p> <p>  </p> <p> We are planning to<strong> publish</strong> <em>Adventice 01 — The Whithe Campion</em>,</p> <p> in <strong>1000 copies</strong>. The release should be on <strong>June 19th 2012</strong>. ✈</p> <p>  </p> <p> We would like to thank all the participants who have generously given their</p> <p> time and creativity free of charge. We are happy to have been able to work</p> <p> with such inspiring and participative people. We could not have made this</p> <p> project possible without their help.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The publication is already 80% realized.The next steps to complete the</p> <p> production are the printing and the finishing. <strong>We need 7000 € in order to</strong></p> <p> <strong>finance Adventice as an object:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> 5000 € — Printing and shaping</p> <p> 2000 € — Other costs [contributors' travel cost, iconography, photoshoot material, text, translation, copyrights, etc.]</p> <p>  </p> <p> We are glad to have reached the stage of production, and we need</p> <p> your help to make it happen. If this publication exists in print, it will enable us</p> <p> to generate various cultural projects linked to our project. In fact, some</p> <p> exhibitions and events are already planned. For all this to happen we need</p> <p> to publish Adventice 01.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Being able to publish the first issue, will allow us to continue this project,</p> <p> and to publish the following issues of Adventice.</p> <p>  </p>
